New Hope Adopts Consumable THC Ordinance

New Hope Adopts Consumable THC Ordinance
Posted on 12/01/2022
The City of New Hope has adopted a new ordinance regulating the sale of consumable tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products in the City. Approved by the New Hope City Council at its Nov. 28 meeting, the ordinance requires anyone selling edible THC products to obtain a license from the City.

The ordinance revision was recommended following changes to state statute in July, legalizing certain “edible cannabinoids” derived from hemp that contain a small amount of THC, the primary psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. State law now permits the sale of products containing THC that are intended to be eaten, commonly known as “edibles,” and beverages containing THC. The products may contain no more than 0.3% of any THC total, no more than five milligrams of THC per serving and no more than 50 milligrams of THC per package. The law also prohibits the sale of these products to anyone under 21 and contains several labeling and packaging requirements.

Per city ordinance, businesses are prohibited from selling THC products without a city license. Also, selling edible THC products from off-sale liquor stores, vending machines, kiosks or other movable places of business is prohibited. It also places a minimum age requirement of 18 years for those selling the products. Licensed businesses are subject to compliance checks to ensure the requirements are being followed.

The City will issue a maximum of 20 edible cannabinoid licenses which will cost $500 annually.
